Right now...

White Coffee 2 go!!

Right now, I am…

:: Settling into a few hours of uninterrupted work time.

:: Wearing my pjs, of course.

:: Hearing the hum of the house fan complimented by the snoring of the dogs.

:: Refreshed after a great night of sleep - finally.

:: Diving into a pool of images waiting to be downloaded, sorted, edited and delivered.

:: Anticipating our family trip to Lowe's later this afternoon to load up on home improvement supplies. This only happens about once a year and it's really fun to have been bitten by the fall cleaning and home improvement bug!

:: Blessed with in-laws that LOVE to babysit Sunday any chance they get.

:: Counting the days until busy season is over and I can focus in on our first real holiday season as a family! At the same time trying not to wish away the days because I do very much enjoy my job. I'm reeeeally excited about this holiday season though!

:: Making lists of things to buy in bulk at Sam's Club later this week. What do you buy in bulk?

:: Tasting my cream and sugar with a little bit of coffee. :)

:: Preparing for Sunday's first birthday party. I cannot believe it is so close!

:: Enjoying the beautiful fall foliage that creates the perfect setting for pictures. I cannot even explain how much I missed shooting portrait sessions last year!

:: Reading To Train Up A Child. This book is loaded with information... I think I will be re-reading it regularly for the rest of my life.

:: Smelling freshly brewed coffee.

:: Admiring the incredible strength and determination my friend Stephanie had during her months of training for a marathon she begins running in less than an hour!

:: Planning for so many things... Sunday's birthday, the holiday season, a grocery store run this afternoon, etc. I love to plan!

:: Dreaming of the day my mom brings her new (to us) hoosier cabinet to ourh ouse! I am reorganizing my entire home to fit this into our lives... I have been waiting for this piece of furniture for years and it is going to fit perfectly in my dining room! You all don't even know how far this change runs... I've been reorganizing my pantry, my laundry room, and our junk drawer in preparation for this!

:: Trying to get a grip on my to-do list and hunker down and work. So, I've got to get to work...!

I hope your weekend is full of blessings!

P.S. Did you miss my question up there? I really do want to know: What are some things you buy in bulk? Share in the comments please!
